According to a new study from the Hypothesis Group, Roku is Canada's most-streamed TV platform in Canada in terms of hours viewed.
"We are proud to lead the Canadian TV streaming market. The Roku brand is growing in Canada with introductions to new streaming devices, original content, and new Canadian entertainment with partners like CBC, Global News, and Crave," said Arthur van Rest, the vice president of international at Roku.
